Appeals Court Lets Redskins Keep Name, Trademark

The Washington Post reports that the Skins have won another round in court:

The Washington Redskins won another legal victory today to protect the team’s trademarks in a fight with Native Americans who say the name is disparaging. The appeals court backed a ruling last year by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that an activist had waited too long to challenge the team’s trademarks. Today’s decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit was just the latest legal action since the activists first challenged six Redskins’ trademarks in 1992.
